Watch the episode on YouTube here
"Sitting down with ourselves is not always comfortable. But the more we check in with ourselves, the more we understand ourselves and the people around us."
Our mind, like any other organ, responds to the stress we put on it. Talking about how our minds feel and seeking ways to address our mental wellness is slowly becoming normal and mainstream. The mind is a part of our body, and needs the same care and love we would give our stomach when it's upset. Dissecting what happens to us when we're stressed & anxious is Priyanka Varma.
